IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: AGRICULTURE AND FISHERIES


Item #d96mar93

World Agriculture and Climate Change: Economic Adaptations (AER-703), R. Darwin, M. Tsigas et al., 1995, $12. Order from Econ. Res. Serv., NASS, 341 Victory Dr., Herndon VA 220070 (tel: 800 999 6779 US/Can.; or 202 219 0913). Two-page summary available.

Used a global economic model that links climate conditions to land and water resources, and to production, trade and consumption of 13 commodities. Possible changes in climate may spur geographic shifts in agricultural production, but should not significantly affect the level of U.S. and world food production. Other findings are: costs and benefits of global climate change are not equally distributed worldwide; world GDP may decline if climate change is severe enough or if cropland expansion is hindered; land use changes in cropland and permanent pasture may raise additional social and environmental issues.


Item #d96mar94

The Impacts of Climate on Fisheries, 1994. From UNEP (U.N. Environ. Prog.), POB 30552, Nairobi, Kenya.


Item #d96mar95

Modelling the Regional Implications of Reductions in Global Warming Potential from Australian Agriculture (95-15), 1995, AUS $9 (ABARE). Conference paper.


Item #d96mar96

Potential Impacts of Global Warming on Salmon Production in the Fraser River Watershed (CCD 94-04), D.A. Levy, 15 pp., 1994. In English or French. A Climate Change Digest reserach summary available from Climate Products, Atmos. Environ. Serv.

The Fraser River in British Columbia produces more salmon than any other river system in the world. Potential impacts vary in different sections of the river, with fish in the coastal area likely to be less affected than those in the interior of the watershed. Direct and indirect impacts are discussed.


Item #d96mar97

"Insect Crop Pests and the Changing Climate," R. Harrington (Rothamsted Experimental Sta., Harpenden, Hertfordshire, UK), Weather, 50(6), 200-208, June 1995. This article is adapted from a report written for Greenpeace Ltd. (See Global Climate Change Digest, Prof. Pubs./Impacts/Agriculture, Dec. 1995.)
